The United Nations Country Team (UNCT) in Viet Nam consists of all the UN agencies, funds and programmes in Viet Nam.The UNCT works "as one" to support Viet Nam in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and Viet Nam’s own National Development Goals through a people-centred, rights-based approach to development as outlined in the One Plan, the combined planning framework for all the UN organizations in Viet Nam participating in the One UN Initiative.

Rapid economic growth combined with direct government action to assist the poorest households and communities have dramatically reduced the incidence of poverty and improved the living standards of most Vietnamese people.

But despite dramatic economic progress in Viet Nam over the last ten years, a significant proportion of the population remains poor.

Sustainable results in rural poverty reduction will not be achieved unless a people-centred rural development policy is designed and executed to enhance the access of the rural population to productive assets in agriculture and off-farm employment.

This helps the UN to be a more relevant and reliable partner for governments.

Viet Nam is one of eight pilot "Delivering as One" countries implementing UN reform at the country level with the aim of making the UN in Viet Nam more responsive and effective to the country’s rapidly evolving needs.
